    Are you taking the lead this year?

    I never get involved personally, but it is probably a good thing.

    Not sure I have the creative gusto to defend my title this year, but always enjoy reading other submissions. Hopefully someone will step up again to run it.

    goad,

    Being you want to remind us all that you won it last year why don't you take the lead this year yourself. Give someone else a chance to win. I don't know if you can run and enter it, probably NOT!!!

    If that was my intention sir I would have reminded that I've won the last 2 years running. 😲

    (Last year was a close run thing though).

    Out of respect for vandervelde I'd first like to hear if he was up for running it again.

    goad,

    I understand, you wanting to give vandervelde a chance first, that actually makes sense.

    2 years in a row you won it...So you really should give someone else a chance. πŸ˜‰

    EDIT: Or perhaps you want a 3 peat. πŸ˜‰

    Hey what about me?πŸ˜ πŸ˜‰
    Nah, I'm no writer and missed last year's, though it was more a matter of forgetting, if the truth be known.
    I'll be in this year though and for me, it's just the fun of writing something that others will read and of course reading and enjoying the writings from the other entrants. I am not a candidate for "leader" BTW.πŸ˜²πŸ˜‰

    Well roared Lion!

    In fact I would take the lead if vandervelde and Ghost wouldn't take it up.

    I will participate. My pieces are recognisable though by my heavy German Accent πŸ˜‰

    Edit: correcting typo, GBS quoted correctly
